You did know, didn't you, that the Emperor Hadrian in 138AD expelled all the Judaeans from Palestine after the 2nd failed Jewish Revolt against Rome
(AD 136-138) under Bar Kosiva-Kochkba?
Ashkenazi (and some Safardi) Jews did not begin (slowly) to settle back in Palestine until around 1850 AD when the Ottomans allowed the sale of land
(at triple the price) to non Muslims in the area, financed by persons within the London branches of the Rothschild family etal. beginning in the late
Also, the so-called 2nd Temple Mount area was sacred to the Jebusites (BC 1100) before "David" invaded with his clan chiefs and later David seems to
have married into the Jebusite royal family for primarily political reasons (by getting Bath-Shebiti ("daughter of the 7 [gods]") pregnant, before
doing away with her non Jewish Hittite Husband Uriah).
Apparently the Hittites and the Jebusites had already intermarried in Jebus (the ancient name for Jerusalem, along with others e.g. Salem, etc.).
But when Muhammed lived, the only Jews in the area were pilgrims who came a few times to the wailing wall remnants (the western retaining wall of the
complex which supported among other things, the Fortess of Antonia built by the Romans) during feasts like Pesach or Sukkoth etc.
So Jews were more or less absent as any measureable group in Palestine from c. AD 139 to c. AD 1860, a period of about 1720 years.
Clear as mud?
